Issue #14249 has been updated by ana06 (Ana Maria Martinez Gomez).


My example in the first comment is not really correct (something went wrong when copying). What I meant:

~~~ ruby
params = { "user" => { "name" => "Nicolas Cage", "age" => 27 } }

params["user"]["age"] #=> 27

params = { "user" => "Nicolas Cage" }

params["user"]["age"] #=> "age"
~~~

@naruse using dig works nicely for this case, but then the question is if it makes sense to keep `str[match_str]`. It is a confusing method...

Feature #14249: Remove str[match_str]

I wonder if `str[match_str]` makes sense.

``` Ruby
"ana"['a'] => "a"

```

I would say this is not expected and it brings problems, for example when accessing nested hashes. For example:

``` Ruby
params = { "user" => "Nicolas Cage" } => {"user"=>"Nicolas Cage"}

params["user"]["age"] => "age"

```

I think `str[regexp]` is enough and that `str[match_str]` can be removed.
